I use a lot of essential oils as aromatherapy. I am into natual healing methods, and use them as often as I can.
One particular favorite of mine is rosemary, I rub it on my temples and tip of my nose when I get one of my horrible headaches. I love the smell and it generally knocks it out as well as Advil. Sage works too. Some people use peppermint also.

I have found that Village Naturals Therapy Headache Relief Lotion works great when I have a mild headache, and often prevents a headache if I feel symptoms coming on. It has peppermint, chamomile, and lavender in it. I rub it on my forehead and the back of my neck. Just don't put it on after washing your face or showering, it stings if your pores are open!
